We catch up on some unfinished 2009 business by looking at several updates, service packs and hotfixes from Autodesk.
For the first product update post of the year here at Kung Fu Drafter we are going to actually look at some updates, service packs, and hotfixes released at the end of 2009. Our readers know that we try to keep up with the mad rush of updates to Autodesk CAD products to make Kung Fu Drafter a reliable resource for our readers. Unfortunately sometimes the flow is too great and we end up having to rewind a bit to catch up on the updates that slipped by.
Autodesk closed out 2009 with a big bag of updates and service packs for a variety of their CAD applications. End users are sure to see some improvements in their Algor Simulation and AutoCAD based applications when they install these updates and service packs.

In addition to these updates and service packs Autodesk also released several hotfixes in December, 2009. These hotfixes solve a variety of specific issues identified by Autodesk from community input and customer service reports. CAD users working with AutoCAD MEP and Revit products will find resolutions to various problems including some software stability issues in Revit.

As always, we recommend that you read the accompanying ReadMe file for any updates, service packs, or hotfixes. There you will find complete information and installation for the download. Also, be sure that you are downloading the correct version of these or any download. Many Autodesk updates, service packs, and hotfixes are available for both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the applicable software. If you keep these simple rules in mind your update process will be a success.
As you can see, Autodesk closed out the year by leaving quite a few presents under the tree for users of these great CAD applications. If you are an AutoCAD MEP, Revit or Algor Simulation user leave us a comment below and let us know how these updates and hotfixes work out for you. We are always interested in hearing from our readers who are experienced in using applications we do not.
